The Topotheque is a platform which makes local, historical relevant material and knowledge, that is kept in private hands, accessible online, in cooperation with the local population.
The Topotheque is an online archive, operated in local entities.
It is a regional historical source of reference, focusing on not only preserving historical material kept in private hands but making it visible to the public.
Topotheques already exist in a number of different European countries. This allows for a comparison of regional historical conditions on a European level, making the diversity and common grounds of every-day life tangible. As a virtual collection, the Topotheque is easily expandable and doesn´t have to comply with editorial deadlines or page limits.
